All in All Disappointed,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bose® Lifestyle® V25 Home Theater System (Electronics)
So I bought this after hearing it in the stores and thought it was great. I did a fair amount of research and read all the bad things about it online in forums but wasn't convinced because of the way I heard it sound. Now I'm no "audiophile" in fact I know very little about audio equipment. So I was delighted to buy the Bose system completely ignorant to what real audiophiles were saying. I must say I was really disappointed when I set it up in my room. I now know why people say "no highs, no lows, must be Bose." When I played music with it it just didn't sound like a $2500. System. In fact I think that my $400 Sony DVD all-in-one home theater system sounded better. Now I don't think its trash though because it had some cool features like ease of use. It was so easy to set up and really easy to use the universal remote feature because I could control all my other equipment (except for the PS3 because its Bluetooth). The sound system isn't completely horrible because I could hear really clear voices during movies but explosions and gunfights were dull sounding and there was barely any background noise. Music had no bass or drum symbols. In the end I returned it (and Amazon was great BTW!) and got a Yamaha receiver with PSB image speakers for a fraction of the price and couldn't be more happy. The Yamaha receivers have the same thing as AdaptIq except theirs is called YPAO and works better. I would not tell anyone close to me to get this sound system but if you want to spend a lot of money to buy an ok sound system that is really easy and convenient to use and you only want to watch movies and television on it then this is the product for you. But if you want a really good sounding system I wouldn't suggest buying this.
